Weekly Tanka Prompt Challenge – Week 54 – Lion Cub

Kiwinana’s Weekly Tanka Prompt Challenge for this week is “Domesticated and Wild.”

The following photo features my husband’s niece, Erin Long. She went to South Africa on a business trip. During her free time, she went to the zoo and pet this lovely lion cub. I teased her say, “Are you doing a ‘Born Free’ Sequel?”
